To all the prescriptive linguists and English teachers out there: take some deep breaths. You’ll see where I’m coming from in a minute…
“Oh, look! There’s that person in the bottom-left of the TV screen, waving their hands and making funny faces!”
“What… the sign language interpreter?”
“Oh THAT’S what they are?!”
“What a weird title,” you say? Why, thank you! I made it myself.
When you’re told that you’re wrong, reactions can range from very mild discomfort to earth-shattering unhappiness, with a whole range of emotions in-between. Yet, in the crazy world of academia, putting up with being “wrong” is almost daily… so how do you deal with it?
I spend my Friday nights writing abstracts and figuring out my path in a crazy amount of research. How ’bout chu?
